Labeling on health and beauty products is problematic for consumers for several reasons. They can be unaware of the Period After Opening (PAO) information; unsure of what it means; or not able to read it, printed on the outer packaging, thrown away when the product was first purchased.

Due to their high costs, it is tempting to keep using a health or beauty product right down to the last drop. Not being able to remember when you bought (or first opened) a beauty product is not always risky. But there are some exceptions:

  • Products that have become contaminated and could cause infectiong. mascara
  • Products with active ingredients, which are no longer effective e.g. containing Vitamin A or C
  • Products that have lost their effectiveness, so no longer safe e.g. sunscreen
  • Products whose effect has changed over time to be undesirable e.g. hair dye
